Whatever Beyonce can do, you can bet Rihanna will have a go at trying to do better.
Not content with regularly teaming up with B's hubby Jay Z on her hit records, the Umbrella hitmaker now has her sights set on her one-time collaborator, Shakira.
Back in 2007, the Crazy in Love superstar teamed up with the Hips Don't Lie sexbomb for racy duet Beautiful Liar, and while Rihanna isn't telling porkies, she's certainly keeping her time in the studio with Shakira on the down low.
It was rapper Pitbull who revealed that the pair was working together - admitting he wanted Rihanna for his new song, but had to opt for Ke$ha as she was busy in the studio with the Colombian beauty.
He says: "The person we were looking at first to work on that record was actually Rihanna! And Rihanna had something she had to do with Shakira and wasn't able to work on our record."
The Rihanna/Shakira collaboration is expected to feature on the new mother's next album, the follow up to 2010's Sale el Sol.
Let's hope the track impresses Ri-Ri's BFF Katy Perry, who admitted she wasn't blown away by Beyonce and Shakira's effort six years ago....
